Course Director Training Course, Sabah, Borneo, March 2012

I am extremely proud and happy to count myself amongst the family of PADI Course Directors. Have been back now from Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, for five days now and it has just about sunk in to what a degree that was a « significant emotional event » and thus life changing.

The opportunity to share with and learn from the PADI Staff (leading representatives from EMEA, Americas, Asia Pacific & Japan) plus 38 other very experienced diving instructors was a real privelege.
So now back to the real world, and we have plenty of work to be done. We will be running four to five Instructor Development Courses this year. Late May/early June, September, late October early November and December, and possibly squeezing one in with our neighbours EasyDive in Juan Les Pins in late April and early May.

Course Director

What a trip!  Just back from an amazing two weeks in « The Land Beneath the Wind », Sabah, Borneo, Malaysia at the Course Director Training Course.  And now very pleased to say that Diamond Diving has it’s very own Course Director, Alex.  An awesome experience with senior staff from PADI Americas, EMEA and Asia Pacific and 38 fellow candidates from all over the world who were all unbelievable.

A big thanks in particular to team-mates Eric from Oklahoma, Arm from Koh Tao, Maciej from Poland, Johnny Chew from Malaysia and Tony from Spain.  Plus translators Jack and Mr Saran.

We now offer Assistant Instructor, Instructor Development Courses, Emergency First Response Instructor and MSDT specialty instructor packages with other 5* and 5*IDC centres in the area.  We will also be offering packages taking you from beginner right through to Instructor.  Look out for our dedicated microsite coming soon with information on all of these programmes.
